During a telephonic conversation, which continued for an hour, it was agreed between the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi. The Foreign Office said the conversation was arranged to “reaffirm the depth and breadth” of bilateral ‘All-Weather Strategic Cooperative Partnership’ and exchange views on Covid-19, bilateral relations, and regional an international issues of mutual interest. “Both foreign ministers agreed to maintain strategic communication and consultation, at all levels, to promote mutual goals of peace and stability in the region and beyond, and expressed commitment to further strengthening all-round cooperation and taking the bilateral relationship to a higher level for the shared benefit of the two countries.” Foreign Minister Wang hoped that 2021 would witness the further deepening of Pakistan-China ties. It was being expected that Chinese President Xi Jinping would visit Pakistan in the early part of 2021. However, it now appears that the trip may not happen in the coming months as FM Qureshi has been invited to visit Beijing to “maintaining the momentum of high-level exchanges.”
Mr. Qureshi has accepted the invitation.
